All,

PdaXrom 2.0 developement will be on hold until further notice. pdaXrom is working on taking an alternate path of development for the future. We will keep everyone up-to-date with any progress that is made once everything becomes official.

Thanks

Because I, for one, am too cheap to buy new gadgets on a whim. The Zaurus is also an almost-perfect platform, and there is much work to build off of, making development easier. Plus, those people who have started Zaurus projects (eg, pdaXrom) are likely going to be loathe to not finish them.

yes, and i've paid my zaurus so high that i would not sell it for a non better device smile.gif i really appreciate the form factor of the zaurus, the usb host, the keyboard and the screen (although 800x600 would be better). no device out there give the same high level of satisfaction for a so small device smile.gif

anyway when you talk about pdaxrom do you talk about pdaxii13 too ?

OK I also think that Zaurus is almost perfect hw platform ... Do you want bluetooth 2.0? ... just buy new CF card. Do you want newer Wifi standard? Buy new card ... dont need to buy new device. Do you want Eth? You can use usb/net. etc. etc... What I see main problem of all linux devices on the market is _compatibility_. When you have WM mobile machine from _any_ vendor you can run _any_ application you buy/program by yourself and it will run as binary and you just dont care if it is hardfloat or sofftfloat if it is eabi or armel or armv5te or armv5tel binary you dont care if it is packaged in deb of ipk if it is qtopia or gpe or pdaxrom, that application just, listen just works! In linux PDAs we have only with Zaurus plenty of incompatible distros and I do not even speak about Nokia's maemo, Google's Andoid etc etc.... For small example. I'd like to run Garnet VM (Palm OS) emulator released for Nokia N770, N800, N810 on my c1000 in pdaxrom. And I just cannot! Why? I wonder if OS (linux) is really good when it is imposible for me to run one application binary on _same_ procesor on almost _same_ version of kernel on almost same hardware. Maybe it is OK on desktop where linux market is quite OK but it seems to me waste of developers time on small embedded linux market. What do you think? Are you satisfied with diversity of Embedded linux market?

It seems you completely missed the point of EABI, it's the new _standard_ by ARM ltd that allows you to mix hard- and softfloat binaries. There's a reason why angstrom and maemo are using it and debian wants to.
